The first Autumn series has begun. Running over six weeks the Autumn series will finish on Sunday 13th November 2016. The skipper with the lowest cumulative points scored over the six Sundays will take the Autumn series prize.
Six skippers competed in extremely light and variable winds. Several boats had technical problems resulting in those skippers withdrawing from some races. The eventual spoils were shared by both John Sharman (GBR 428) and Hugo Chandor (GBR 455) who scored an identical number of 1st and 2nd places. Third place went to Darren Mussell (GBR 493).
